Mkv files micro-stuttering every 10 seconds on Roku 3 and LG G-pad

About 5-6 weeks ago I noticed that my Mkv files started doing a microstutter every 10 seconds or so. My server version is I have no issues with any other file types. Oddly enough some of my devices do NOT stutter at all and playback is smooth.

Devices with micro-stuttering on MKV files
Roku 3 - wired
Roku 3 - wired
Roku Stick (3600R) - wifi
LG G-pad android plex app - wifi

Devices with NO micro-stuttering on MKV files
3 Windows 10 PC's web app (using chrome) - wired
3 Windows 10 PC's Plex app from Windows Store - wired
LG G6 smartphone android plex app - wireless

This is my first post and I've been using Plex for about 3 years now. I've gone through the player settings on each device/app and don't see anything different amongst them.

My router is the NETGEAR Nighthawk R7000 so I doubt that is a bottle-neck.

my server is running on the below and is inside my home network.

I've unplugged my Roku's for an hour each and rebooted to see if that would help. No luck. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling my gpad plex app. No luck.

Any advice or guidance on how to figure out what changed would be much appreciated.
